Joseph, are you sure that the desired table is in the DataEnvironment
of your form already? If so, is the RecordSourceType of the grid = 1 -
If these two things are true, you should see your table (or view) listed
when you click on the combo box arrow for the RecordSource property (a
default table will NOT appear, it must be selected).
Remember you must explicitly set the ColumnCount property if you want to
be able the modify (or even see in the property sheet) the individual
columns of the grid.
BTW, be wary of using optimistic table buffering in a grid whose record
source is a table, not a view. All my attempts resulted in outcome that
indicated it was doing only optimistic record buffering, even though I
explicitly set the BufferOverRideMode to table buffering. I used a view
instead, and that solved that problem.
